Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you need to unban someone from a private server in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO)? It can be frustrating to deal with bans, especially if it was a mistake or if the person has learned their lesson. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of unbanning someone from a private CSGO server.
Step 1: Accessing the Server Console
The first step is to access the server console. This is where you can enter commands and make changes to the server settings.
To open the console, press the tilde (~) key on your keyboard. The console should appear at the bottom of your screen.
Step 2: Finding the Player’s Steam ID
To unban someone, you need their Steam ID. The Steam ID is a unique identifier that every player has.
To find the Steam ID of the banned player, open your Steam friends list and right-click on their name. Select “Copy Steam ID” to copy their Steam ID to your clipboard.
Step 3: Accessing the Ban List
Once you have the player’s Steam ID, it’s time to access the ban list. Type “status” in the console and press Enter. This command will display a list of players currently connected to your server along with their corresponding Steam IDs.
Note: If there are too many players on your server, you might want to use filters like “status | grep ‘Player Name'” to narrow down your search.
Option A: Removing Ban by Steam ID
If you want to remove a ban based on someone’s Steam ID, type “removeid
Option B: Removing Ban by IP Address
In some cases, you might want to remove a ban based on the player’s IP address. To do this, type “removeip
Step 4: Saving Changes
After you have successfully unbanned a player from your CSGO private server, it’s important to save your changes. Type “writecfg” in the console and press Enter. This command saves all changes made to the server configuration file.
Step 5: Restarting the Server
To ensure that all changes take effect, it’s recommended to restart your CSGO private server. You can do this by typing “quit” in the console and pressing Enter. Then, start your server again using your preferred method.
Unbanning someone from a private CSGO server is a straightforward process once you know how to access the server console and have the necessary information like Steam ID or IP address of the banned player. Remember to save your changes and restart your server for them to take effect. By following these steps, you can effectively unban someone and give them another chance to enjoy playing on your private CSGO server.
